Angelina Jolie’s “WANTED” movie posters banned in UK!
According to reports, 2 movie posters for Angelina Jolie’s hit action movie “Wanted” have been banned by the U.K.’s Advertising Standards Authority. The reason? The sexy, weapon-baring promotional images glamorize the use of guns and violence and are unsuitable for children. A total of 17 complaints were lodged against the ads, one of which features Angelina Jolie draped over the hood of a car brandishing guns.
ASA said in a statement, “We acknowledged most viewers would understand the posters reflected the content of an action film. However, we considered that because the ads featured a glamorous actress, action poses, several images of, or related to guns and aspirational text, they could be seen to glamorize the use of guns and violence.”
